A plan to nearly double the fee for collecting dry trash and yard debris in the unincorporated area has failed again after a vote Friday by the Chatham County Commission.
Commissioners voted 4-4 on a motion to raise the solid waste fee for dry trash from $43 to $85 per year for single-family residences.
The tie vote means the measure failed, but the issue will likely come up again at the next meeting when all commissioners are present, said Chairman Al Scott.
Commissioners Helen Stone, Patrick Farrell, Lori Brady and Dean Kicklighter voted against the measure. Commissioner Priscilla Thomas was absent during voting.
